How to Get There
A lovely afternoon strolling around the estate of Solberge hall, we had a lovely afternoon tea which hit the spot nicely. It was a little bit pricey but worth a visit. I think we will return when the weather improves
We recently stayed at Solberge Hall for a family wedding and found it to be a really nice, welcoming place as we first arrived. The staff at reception were really helpful and we were personally showed to our room which is always as nice touch.
- The room was fantastic, well designed and clean with comfortable beds. The shower floor is very slippery and could do with a bigger mat.
- In general the staff were really helpful and were always around when you needed them. A special mention here for Jan who is the shining light of the staff!
- The location is amazing with fantastic views from the lounge area, a great place to enjoy an afternoon tea!
Room for improvement.....
- There really needs to be consistency with the chef’s! The first night we had dinner it was great, really tasty and well presented. We enjoyed it that much that we ordered the same the following night...... but we had no idea it was the same! It was presented completely differently and tasted differently as well (both main course and desert) when we asked why we were told it was a different chef.
- On our first morning my daughter ordered an omelette for breakfast which she thoroughly enjoyed, she ordered the same thing the following morning which was not only presented differently but also contained the incorrect filling and was burnt. We sent it back and asked why the difference from the previous day..... different chef was the answer!
For serious consideration.....
- My wife is vegetarian so we made that quite clear from the moment we booked and confirmed it at check in and when ordering meals...... we had an afternoon tea where meat based sandwiches came stacked on top of non-meat sandwiches, they were sent back!
- A cheese and mushroom omelette came out with cheese and ham in it, it got sent back.
We explained why each time yet nobody seemed too bothered. This needs addressing!
With some consistency and consideration this place could easily get 5 stars ...... but not yet!
Stayed for two nights on an full board basis and found it to be quite quiet, relaxing, friendly and full of rural character. The food was quite good and the Yorkshire Breakfast very good, but the hotel was showing signs of needing some maintenance and repair. This aside it was most enjoyable.
Having visited this lovely hotel over the years for a number of functions from weddings,birthdays and charity events(over 10 times)the lack of management just got to me last night.
Its a nice hotel with great food but the bar service is unbelievably bad,not enough service,running out of products is unacceptable in this day and age especially in an establishment which has historically struggled financially.
It is not rocket science to know how many people are attending a function so have enough bar staff available so the wait is less than 20 mins at least just to get to the front!
We stayed here for two nights and used the hotel as a base for touring the Yorkshire Moors & Dales
This is a traditional hotel with splendid rooms in the main body of the building, we stayed in room four which was large and well appointed. Spotlessly clean and very quiet for a good nights sleep in a huge bed.
Our only gripe would be the service we experienced.
Our suggestion would be that the liaison between waiting staff and the kitchen is improved.
On our first night the fish and chips were over done, on the second night the duck was under cooked despite being ordered as over pink.
For our second breakfast the fresh fruit pot arrived after the "full english" Gaye tried her best to resolve this type of service issue.
We would visit again but would hope that the service has improved by then.
